The United States was defeated 4-3 in a Greco-Roman dual meet against Belarus, in the western city of Grodno, on Saturday night.

The U.S. is currently in Belarus for training, with some of the athletes on the tour preparing for other competitions in the upcoming weeks. The team spent time at the Stayki Olympic Training Center in Belarus, before travelling to Grodno for the match.

Claiming victories for the USA in the dual meet were 2015 World Team member Patrick Martinez (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC), Barrett Stanghill (Minneapolis, Minn./Minnesota Storm) and 2017 World Team member G’Angelo Hancock (Colorado Springs, Colo./New York AC).

Four U.S. athletes lost matches by technical fall in the dual meet. Names of their opponents and match scores will be posted when received.

Four athletes on this tour will compete in Poland at the U23 World Championships later this month, Stanghill and Hancock, plus Kamal Bey and Blake Smith.
